Stumping and DRS Rules Changed

The biggest rule that the ICC has changed is regarding stumping and the subsequent umpire review. Often, you must have seen that along with stumping, it was also checked whether the ball hit the bat. Usually, on this occasion, the DRS of the teams was saved. The wicketkeepers started playing tricks regarding this. He would repeatedly call for stumping deliberately to check the catch without taking DRS so the field umpire would go to the third umpire. But now this rule has changed.

Now, if the third umpire is reviewing the stumping, then only the stumping will be checked and not the caught out. DRS must be taken separately if the fielding team has to check the catch.

Change In The Rules Of Concussion Substitute

Meanwhile, ICC has also changed its concussion rules on the New Year. Let us tell you that if a player is out of action due to being hit on the head by a ball or getting injured, it is called a concussion. There is a rule that the injured player can be replaced by a player who is part of the final 12 or 15. But now there has been a slight change in this rule: if the injured player has already been stopped from bowling, the substitute player will also not be able to bowl.

Also, if a player gets injured, the doctor and physio will have a maximum of 4 minutes to decide whether that player will be able to play again after treatment or retire hurt.

Rule Of No Ball Checking By Third Umpire

Let us tell you that in the last few years in cricket, on the front foot, no ball has been checked by the third umpire. If the field umpire cannot see, the third umpire calls it a no. A new rule has been added: the third umpire must watch the bowler’s feet. Apart from the front foot, the third umpire must also see whether the bowler’s foot is behind the line. The third umpire must consider whether the bowler’s feet are in the bowling box.
